Fantastic opportunity to learn about Geomancy with Dr Alexander Cummins
Dr. Alexander Cummins is a first rate academic and magical practitioner. We first met him when he spoke at last year’s May conference on Cursing and we had the pleasure of hearing him speak again this year at our conference on Ritual Magic. At our 2018 conference, Al spoke with zeal about the divinatory practice of Geomancy. Many people spoke to him (and us) about his talk, how inspiring it was and asked about this fascinating method of divination. While he was at the Museum, Al also spent a good while looking at objects with Dr. Peter Hewitt (our Museum’s Collection Researcher) and he had lots of interesting insights and thoughts about geomantic objects we have in our collection.
If you weren’t able to attend the conference and want to know about Geomancy, there is now a fantastic opportunity to find out about it online. We really cannot stress how highly recommended this comes: Al’s knowledge is encyclopedic and his enthusiasm is infectious. Members of the Museum team have heard Al Cummins lecture and been lucky enough to chat to him and pick his brains but we still plan to undertake this online course to enhance our knowledge and understanding (and just because we know it will be amazingly interesting – that is how good he is!)
